Amped Software Seminars

03 May 2017, Seminar Theatre

09:45 10:10
Scientific analysis, processing, enhancement, and presentation of video and images with Amped FIVE
David Spreadborough, International Trainer, and Certified Forensic Video Analyst – Amped Software

For evidence to be relied upon and trusted by a courtroom, it must be dealt with correctly. We must ensure that all work is reproducible and repeatable with any image or video submitted, portraying fact, and not fiction.

13:55 14:20
Image forgery detection and fast camera-image identification with Amped Authenticate
David Spreadborough, International Trainer, and Certified Forensic Video Analyst – Amped Software

Image manipulation can be performed on a standard smartphone. Thus, when images are submitted as evidence we must be able to validate that they are a true and accurate representation of what they purport to show. Manipulation may have been necessary, but malicious manipulation may change the interpretation of the image and therefore the evidential meaning.
